version .4b was just the Z skip stop. If you want the J/Z scenarios, download version .5b (it was just uploaded today)

I ran the whole route. I understand that it's currently a BETA, so I would just like to make a few suggestions:

There should some scenery around the Williamsburg Bridge. It looks very bare without anything around.
The Williamsburg Bridge could definitely use some more work. Hopefully in a later version it will look as good as the current Manhattan Bridge in development
The .brightness values are slightly off between the Bridge and Essex. It gets dark too late after leaving the bridge and brightens too late at Essex
The curve about 25-50 meters after Flushing Avenue should be fixed. It looks a little bit off
Add in photorealistic textures at Essex
Very minor: get the new Marcy Av announcement (the one that includes an announcement for the B44 SBS transfer)

And just a small question: The V line was finished several years ago, now with the J/Z almost done, how is the current M coming along? The only parts that need to be built now are the Myrtle Avenue Branch and the Chrystie Cut

I think the curve after Cypress Station should be reduced a little bit. This is because trains can derail at certain speeds.

Also, would there be a M train to Bay 25 Street via Sea Beach line (N Line) or the J train shuttle on the brighton Beach Line (B Line)

The Williamsburg Bridge has been improved by DJ Hammers and I along with some improved texture work.

I put in the brightness commands a while back into an early development version of the line (along with the signals) and i just didn't get a chance to update the things before the beta was released.

The Announcements have also been updated a while back, the beta was just released with an older sound folder before i sent JayJay the newest one.

Rest assured the majority of the things will be fixed for the full release.

Along with the Q, Mr Railfan and I are working on finishing up the J/Z line with updated graphics and details.

Are those new signals in the first pic? They look different from the ones in the released route.
